  • What's New

In August 1992, Austin voters overwhelmingly approved the SOS Water Quality Ordinance and the Save Our Springs Alliance was incorporated to defend and advocate for the ordinance, Barton Springs, and the Edwards Aquifer ecosystem.

Now, 22 years later, as the threats to Barton Springs and the aquifer unfortunately continue,  we're still here fighting to protect them.

Please join us, we need your support!

Rally This Saturday
Tuesday, 28 April 2015

Come out this Saturday, May 2nd at 10:30 a.m., Roberta Crenshaw Pedestrian Bridge (under Mopac) to help STOP the proposed Mopac/45SW loop and the proposed Double Decker Toll Roads over Lady Bird Lake.  The toll road authority plans to build FOUR TOLL LANES on MOPAC from Cesar Chavez to Slaughter Lane, including a double-decker bridge over Lady Bird Lake & Zilker Park with a flyover next to Austin High School. Their plan will expand MoPac to 12 lanes! (IH-35 has 8)

If you love Austin and want to help protect Lady Bird Lake, Zilker Park, Barton Springs, the hike/bike trails, Austin High School and our downtown - be at the RALLY this Saturday, May 2nd, with elected officials, neighborhood, parks, and conservation leaders. Meanwhile, check the updated graphics and information at KeepMopacLocal.org and donate to the Keep Mopac Local campaign here.

Please take a few minutes today to tell our local toll road agency board of directors to put the SH 45 SW aquifer toll road on hold until there is a complete and honest study of the entire proposed 45SW/Mopac toll expansion loop.   The email addresses of the “CTRMA” board members are set out below.
